In Country: Marvel Comics’ “The ‘Nam” — Episode 83

IC 83 Website CoverEd Marks goes deep into the Easter Offensive of April 1972 in part one of the two-part “Siege at An Loc” storyline by Don Lomax and Wayne Vansant. Plus, a backup story called “Stateside” begins as we take a look at what happened to the boys from the fifth batallion (from all the way back at the beginning of the series) as they live their lives back home. And I also continue my look at China Beach with season 2.

Here’s the opening and closing credits to season 2 of China Beach:
